Rodney Yee Decodes Yoga Sutra 1.2: Calm the Chatter of the Mind

Master teacher Rodney Yee shares his interpretation of Yoga Sutra 1.2.

In Sutra 1.2, Patanjali, the sage who compiled the Yoga Sutra, writes that we need to diminish the chatter, or vrttis, of the mind in order to witness our true self. Anyone who has tried to meditate knows this is much easier said than done. Even after 40 years of practice, my monkey mind can quickly take over as I sit in Padmasana (Lotus Pose). A cloud of thoughts rolls in like a storm or a swarm of mosquitoes. These thoughts about how to be a “good yogi,” how to perfect my posture, how to be even more aware—masquerade as important notions, but they are really just nuisances.
